Haven't gotten too far yet... but you do have a very pleasing, clear, and calm voice.  I never could do that on voice overs. smiley  I'm at Lesson 5 so far, and I'm glad that you didn't rush into the topic, even though a lot of it I knew.  More of a comparison to other static generators would have been a nice thing... I'm liking hugo better than jekyll already!

Good show... and I'll let you know how it progresses.

I prefer to use [the product I am affiliated with]
It has best JavaScript autocomplete.


Until you're established - especially when you're recommending your product, you want to make that association clear.

Nice... I've signed up.  Thanks for the discount!  I'd not heard of hugo before, and this is a good time to look at expanding past Wordpress in my website skillset.  Thanks!

Licensing implies something different to me than price, however...

Fair 'nuff. But would you care to elaborate? smiley

There are some component developers and service providers where the price is totally reasonable, but the license conditions are not.  Limiting use, distribution, DRM on distribution, etc.  None of those have anything to do with the price itself...

^^ Amusing, but probably unlikely. Those men are all pulling a wry face and appear to be looking down - presumably at where their respective brains are located. The dog, on the other hand, is not looking down or anywhere except at the camera, and anyway looks more like a puppy and would not be mature enough to mate at that age. He is probably merely pulling a wry face because someone photoshopped him or something tastes funny in his mouth. Maybe he has just eaten the household budgerigar and is wondering what to do with the feathers. You'd probably have to prise open his jaws to be sure.

Way to take the funny right out of a joke. I thought this was the silly humor thread, not the true stuff thread. Please excuse me if I posted it in the wrong place.

Agreed... seemed a needless addition to a pretty good joke.

because of the licensing?

Yeah. I had a client that used it. The license used to go (still does?) for several thousand IIRC.

That's the pricing... I know about that since we were evaluating them vs ComponentOne, and (still) in my opinion should have gone with SyncFusion.  Licensing implies something different to me than price, however...

RightNote has had a 3.0 for awhile.

I think one big thing is Evernote integration.

***  Anybody using it?  Your thoughts? ***
I use it.  It's ok, gets the job done.  I thought I would love that feature as a way to keep notes synced or some idea like that.  but in the end, I just don't use it much.  I do it once or twice a year when I need to search through evernote for a lost clip or something.  I think my problem is that it becomes this thought, "Do I put this note in rightnote?  or evernote?" or I'm on my phone and don't have rightnote, so i stick it in evernote to later sync with rightnote, sheesh.  So i just don't care after a while. 

My point is, I don't consider the evernote functionality a big deal.  It wouldn't even factor in my decision to use Rightnote or not.

I tried it.  It's a bit... clunky, but gets the job done.  The clunkiness is a function of the limiters on the Evernote interface, rather than on Rightnote.

In all honesty, however, since I can write in Markdown in Evernote now, I've dropped using Rightnote for all intents and purposes.
I'm interested in how you use markdown, if you don't mind.

How I use Markdown in Evernote?  Or in general?

In general, as much as possible, I format all of my writing in Markdown; the plain text allows me to use several editors, and still be able to output to a common format at the end, whether that be word, pdf, or whatever.  That's one of the reasons I created my MarkdownBuddy application for NANY 2015- to be able to use plain text editors that don't really support markdown or markdown preview, but still see it's final state.

With Evernote, I use postach.io to host sites that I update semi regularly- it points to an Evernote notebook.  To write to that notebook, I use Marxico, which allows me to write directly to Evernote.  Postach.io syncs and interprets the text to create the sites.  Other editors I use are Writemonkey, Scrivener, Stackedit, Draft, Texts, and Texthaven... each for different uses cases and purposes.  But it being in plain text allows them all to operate more or less seamlessly.  MarkdownBuddy helps with that... as some of the more esoteric parsings are caught with that preview.

Not sure if that really makes sense, now that I've written it out... but it works smiley

Welcome to the site, ThomasSchulz!  Hope you stick around for more than a response... we're a loose conglomeration of software enthusiasts and coders, 'led' by the inestimable mouser.  Thanks for the response, and hope to see you around on a more congenial basis.

Not really.  AutoHotkey is single-threaded.   Angry

I figured as much... but figured it was worth at least asking.  It might be worth it to have a wrapper in a more robust language for tasks like this that would offload the actual long running task to a background thread...  would that be helpful?

@4wd - BTW, you spelled "Godvernment" wrong there.

I liked "godverment" more. Thmbsup

Especially now that so many are acting like divinely ordained beings, with godlike indifference towards their charters, rather than as legally constituted and defined bodies whose function was to serve those who created them.

Such monsters we create for ourselves and loved ones! undecided

Just heard him singing that in 2014... and his voice has held up surprisingly well.

So I came over here and found 1.1.5.163 and that seems to unzip all the data but epCheck does enter into (Not Responding) a half a dozen times or so.

The problem is two-fold:

  • I use the 7-zip application to handle the unzipping so while it's actually unzipping a file, epCheck can't do anything but wait.  However, most of the zips are pretty small so the waits here shouldn't affect things much.
  • The bigger issue at hand is that the TVDB.com site has been really slow lately.  Most of the Not Responding is epCheck simply waiting for the zip downloads to finish.

It's rather frustrating as there isn't a whole lot that I can do about it.  Sadly, the best advice I can give is to simply leave epCheck alone while it's doing the updates.

Is it possible to call 7-zip on a worker thread so the UI at least won't lock up?  Not sure what your limitations are, but I figured I'd at least suggest it.

The title of this post is exactly what freeware authors fear -- that our software will get a bad reputation because of some bad sites.

The lesson is not to beware freeware -- it's to beware these third party download sites.

This is not what the linked article is about. The author clears that up in the comments section:

It doesn't matter what download site you use. The people that make the freeware are the ones bundling things.
Yes, some download sites make it worse by bundling on top of the bundling.
(Lowell Heddings, January 11, 2015)

That still doesn't clear it up.  Especially with the highlighted part.  That's saying the exact opposite, i.e. that the developers are the ones doing the bundling.  There are several freeware authors on this site that would never even *think* of bundling.

RE: Beware of Freeware downloads
The title of this post is exactly what freeware authors fear -- that our software will get a bad reputation because of some bad sites.

The lesson is not to beware freeware -- it's to beware these third party download sites.
ALWAYS go to the source, the author of the software, to find the download.  NEVER trust a third party source unless it is directly linked from the author's web page.

The problem with this for the average user is Chrome.  Not sure if FF/IE do this also, i.e. this file is not one that (we think is) downloaded commonly, so you shouldn't download it.

*sigh*
